THIS JUST IN! The Final race will be part of the California State XC Series. As such, USAC Licenses will be necessary. One-day licenses will be available, however EVERY RIDER'S entry fee will now be an additional $5. Expert, Semi-Pro, and Pro riders who wish to receive State Championship points and US National Qualifying status must have a full USAC license (not a one-day). These licenses will be available onsite as well, however, for convenience please go to the USAC website, purchase your license ahead of time and bring your print out to the race.Tomorrow's XC racing will be at Fort Ord East Garrison (new entrance).
Sunday's DH racing will again will be a fundraiser for Todd Cannatelli, who was injured in a serious accident in the New Mexico NORBA race early this year. The course is described as:
The Final course of the series has been mapped out, and it is a similar route to the final course from the 2006 series. It opens up on some rather fast fire road, turning into single track, then back to fire road, and it repeats this pattern into the finish area. There are a few semi steep sections that will test breaking and tire traction. The course has many fun turns that are bermed as well as flat track style. This course features some really fun trail riding and is not overly technical, yet with the dry terrain, it will be tricky to navigate the route at race speeds. Series awards will be handed out following the final runs, around 3:30 pm.Also, there will again be pixie and chainless events at the DH race. Hope everyone heads down to support the finals on the coast.
